Since I do not live in the Carolinas, I do not know if this is genuine or not. I am sure someone will be kind enough to tell me as I know BBQ sauce is pretty sacred! It is just the name of the recipe I got from my sister in law. I have tweeked it a bit from hers to suit my own tastes. It is tangy and spicy from the mustard, vinegar, and chipotle seasoning and just a bit sweet. Delicious with pork, beef, or chicken. Can use as a marinade too.
